know nevada better than anyone. that is your town and you write extensively on the demographics, the change. we have talked about reid and his victory there and certainly some would have said was beatible but not by sharon angle. with that said, you have got the president on the ground in nevada. why is that -- i guess a perfect place if you will for this launch to hear from him in about 40 minutes or so? >> well, tamron, even though we are not a border state, we are an emblem of what's happening in this country. the hispanic population is burgeoning for sometime. now about a quarter of the state. it was about 20% of the electorate and talk about the election results that john mccain was talking about yesterday. barack obama won the latino vote about 55 points here in 2012. about the same percentage that he won by in 2008. and look at where the president is going today to make the announcement. going to a high school which is about 62% hispanic population of kids. maybe the biggest problem in this state facing the education system is a lot of hispanic kids who have come here and
are making the difference in a lot of these states. nevada, out west. north carolina, south carolina. more immigrants there, latinos. there is this realization i think that republicans need to turn more to the party of reagan. reagan as you said legalized 3 million illegal immigrants in the mid-'80s and this is probably the language that republicans need to embrace as they try to sell it to their base. >> yeah. let me point out, michael, you have paul ryan on "meet the press" and extensive interview and praising marco rubio's immigration stance. >> i support earned legalization, not rewarding people for cut in line but fix this problem. >> will he be an effective voice bringing over conservatives who may be still apprehensive or for that matter on the subject alone? michael, he did not have this bold view when it was perhaps needed during the election cycle. >> well, the only person that i remember broaching this subject in primary season was former house speaker newt gingrich at a time you will remember, tamron, he was briefly the front-runner and when he spoke out on this issue, there we
president obama is set to lay out his plan on immigration proposal in nevada. here to talk about it is gloria borger, and cornell belcher, and political contributor and republican consultant margaret hoover. gloria, let me start with you. what is so different this time around for the republicans? simply the reality of november's election? >> yeah, they are worried about their own survival as a political party. one way to survive as a party is to broaden your base and not remain hostage to a single part of it. and i think that has been the problem for the republican party when you talk about john mccain. when john mccain was challenged from the right in 2010, when he was running for re-election to the senate, he became much more conservative on immigration policy. now i think he's sort of unshackled and he's back to the position he was in in 2005 and 2007. i mean, you know, i spent a lot of time with him on that straight talk express when he was running for the presidency in 2007. and i remember him telling me that he was stunned at the vitriolic reaction within his own party to i
nevada. for 30 years, republicans and democrats in nevada have said they don't want nuclear waste buried in nevada. anything that touches the local state touches the constituents, and touches the people who are going to vote for them. when we get to national issues, however, it is different situation. the number out of 233 republicans and house, only 16 of them were elected from districts carried by president obama. up to 200 democrats -- of the 200 democrats, only eight or nine or elected from districts carried by governor romney. that means the greatest danger to these republicans and democrats is in the primaries. what happens if you or a member of congress, you are great concern is to protect yourself in those primaries from people coming at you from the left and right. congresswoman edwards touched on it. there is only one way around this. it takes leadership to provide cover in politics, to get people the courage to stand up and do what is right. how do you get there? members of congress -- i have been in this town for 30 years. they don't know each other anymore. they don't spend
of nevada. you'll hear how eight senators as we told you about yesterday, are pushing for similar reforms and what it means for the entire country. the most significant overhaul perhaps of our immigration system that we have seen in a long, long time. lots of talk for a couple of decades now. finally some action perhaps. >> and sort of an unlikely spokesperson to me. i think senator mccain has become the face of the eight senators and that's fascinating. >> he's had some very strong and blunt language why they're doing this. we'll get to that in a second. >>> and later this half hour, chris brown gets in trouble again, and los angeles police are investigating serious allegations involving another singing star. we'll sort all of that out in "the skinny." >> sorry. i needed a little sip. i needed to cool down after hearing that chris brown news. back in trouble again. he had the rihanna incident, he had some other stuff. then the "gma" incident more than a year ago. >> never ending for him. >> man, chris, get it together. get a new pr person. >>> let's get to some real news first. protester

nevada and is a gun owner, obviously it's hard for him but he's not up for re-election for four years and that if he runs again. there are many democrats up in 2014 from pro gun states who will be really vulnerable voting on something an assault weapons ban. i think what -- sort of a back door escape for the senate will be to put this pressure on the floor that would allow for an assault weapons ban but leave it open to amendment, in other words, it could be weakened easily by other amendments on the floor. it will kind of give cover to democrats who will be vulnerable from this, but the ultimate result will be, i think, just universal background checks. that's the maximum you're going to see here just for political reasons. and i think that even if the future, it's going to be hard, even if the congress is democratic on both sides because democrats are vulnerable on this issue as well as republicans. >> our power panel, thanks for being patient where me. i appreciate it. i appreciate your time. of course, we are following this breaking news elsewhere today coming out of massachusetts
. that was a difference in florida, virginia, colorado, and nevada. other states were impacted as well.ol romney took white males and independents by significant margins. when you punch it all up together. when you bunch it up, it was anhe entitlement vote this year. american families earning less than $30,000 a year broke big for the president. 62% to 35. so it's clear that left wing ideology did not win the day for barack obama. big spending on federal programs did. that's the key. because many in the media would have us believe liberal ideology was confirmedve by this election. it was not.ol however, however. secularism is certainly eroding traditional power. no question about it. those americans who attend religious services at least once a week voted for romney 59 to 39. the problem is church-going is is on the decline in this country. here is an example. despite the president's controversial insistence that some catholic entities provide birth control and after pills, catholics supported obama 50% to 48%. down from 2008 but still a surprise to some. but only only about 30% of american catholics
to nevada tuesday we'll ask him about that as well. >> interesting theory by just being associated with the plan it could drive some people away from the plan in congress. complicated dynamic. let's talk about this extraordinary interview, the joint under view, the first time it's happened with president obama and hillary clinton sitting down talking to "60 minutes." it airs tonight. i wonder is there talk in washington this isn't in some ways president obama picking favorites in the race to replace him in 2016 because joe biden is also talking about maybe running. >> reporter: that's right and, you know, joe biden isn't sitting right next to the president in that interview. i don't think president obama has ever done an interview sitting next to anybody but his wife. so you bet there's a lot of talk about that and we'll talk to our powerhouse roundtable about that. >> you heard hillary clinton say that this is a surprise, who would have thought four years ago they would be sitting together and being so close. very interesting. >>> also this week hearings, confirmation hearings for
of the latino vote in american politics than nevada. 2010, harry reid won 69% of latinos in his race against sharron angle. two years later, obama won that vote matching what he received nationwide. they make up 27% of the state's population overall, 19% of the actual voting electorate. critics also charge the president though is making a political point by flying nine hours to make this immigration speech. five there, four on the way back. but in some ways he's returning to del sol high school where he was met with huge crowds during his 2008 campaign, a day after the group of senators unveiled their new plan for dealing with roughly 11 million undocumented people living in this country. this trip, by the way, is all about the white house saying hey, we made a campaign promise. and we're going to go to places that they made this campaign promise to show we're trying to fulfill it. >> we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes, and even watch our children while not affording them any of the benefits that make our country so gre

that what & what lies ahead. >> you were with the president when he we want to nevada this week, spoke on immigration. there does seem to be despite all the obstacles a sense of possibility now that we have a bipartisan coalition in the senate. what is your percent peck having been with the president on air force one. >> i think that there's obviously this grand movement now and this collaboration on a bipartisan level, to that helps to set the environment, i think, but there's still a lot of work to do. the president admits that as we get closer to a resolution or an actual law, that it's going to be tougher. there will be a lot of sack feeses made there. we still need the public to be engaged, and that's why he went out directly to las vegas where the support was overwhelming for him, for many progressives who were thinking about immigration reform, and i think it was a good way of telling the latino community and all the other immigrant groups that right now are faced with problems and immigration because it's a broken system, that, hey, we're going to get this done. we're going to
and will do that in las vegas. in nevada, a state where hispanicses makes.27% of the population, comes a day after a bipartisan group of eight senators reached a compromise how to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform. included in that bill, a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers currently in this country. >> other bipartisan groups and senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals, but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk opposing immigration reform than supporting it. >> the what's going on now is unacceptable. in reality, what's been created is a de facto amnesty. we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes and even watch our children while not affording them any of the benefits that make our country so great. >> a few of the bullet points, under the framework, those seeking citizenship would be required to register with the feder
. >> good morning. >> so the president coming out with his ideas on immigration reform today in nevada, and there does appear to be a key difference between his notion and what you put on the table yesterday. have you called for a path to citizenship, only after verification that the borders are secure. the president does not seem to support that delay. he seems to want a path to citizenship much more quickly right away. how big of a difference is this? seems like a pretty big difference. >> it's a difference we can bridge. i was on a telephone conversation with the president and senator schumer sunday night. i think we have the same goals in mind, we share the same values, our approaches may be slightly different. the difference on the ground, we have to put together a bipartisan bill in the senate and the house, to send to the president it will look different than what i might right or the president might write. but it will reach the senate to make sure 11 million people living in america, have a path to legalization first and then to citizenship. >> senator durbin, brooke baldwin. m
of what this debate is all about. let's go to teresa, joining us from north las vegas nevada. the democrat line. caller: good morning. i wanted to call in support of the president and democrats. i am a progressive and in independent thinker. i do not think you should use the 14th amendment, unless it comes to a really economic crash. i am for raising the debt ceiling. i believe that we need to pay our bills. i have to pay my bills. if i do not pay my credit card bills, my credit rating goes down. my credit score goes down. and i pay more in interest in the future. i think it is very irresponsible of these tea party republicans to hold the country hostage. there are other issues that can be negotiated for spending and raising revenues and the debt ceiling should not be a part of it. host: ok, thank you for calling. here is the editorial cartoonist of the post. the idea of minting a single coin valued at $1 trillion. using that to increase the debt limit. a number of stories saying that basically, this is not going to happen. his is what is reclined -- this -- what ezra kline writes he point
in nevada with his speech. if it is moving forward to solving this big issue that is one thing, if it becomes another one of the political speeches that we have seen before this opposition has set up, you could inflame some of the opposition that has yet to form in the house republicans, and we could see the same kind of fight that we've seen many times before. jon: yeah, it's going to be fascinating to see what his proposal is tomorrow and how he reacts to this proposal in the senate. i'm sure you'll be talking about it tonight on special report. bret baier, thank you. all the latest developments on that show, special report every week night 6:00pm eastern right here on fox news channel. jaime: jon, a recent report showing the number of americans who belong to unions falling to its lowest level since the 1930s. what is behind the decline? chief washington correspondent james rosen joins us from our d.c. bureau. james, i gather this decline is a reflection of long-term trends and maybe more recent developments? >> reporter: precisely. the decline in union membership is itself a
for congressional leadership will be to pass a comprehensive bill. as senator from nevada who witnessed firsthand the difficulties our broken immigration system presents for immigrants and their families it is important to me personally that we resolve this issue. i will do everything in my power to get a bill across the finish line. nothing short of bipartisan success is acceptable to me. president obama has already taken commendable executive action to stem deportation of upstanding young men and women brought to this country by their parents. i commend him for making immigration reform a top priority. president obama will place to the nation his own ideas during a visit to las vegas tomorrow. with bipartisan support billing in both houses of congress and a president who is eager to solve this issue, there is no reason we should not pass comprehensive immigration reform immediately. it will be good for our economy and good for families. successful immigration reform cannot be piecemeal and it must include a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented individuals in our country. legislation
, nevada and north dakota. states where republican governors are leading the effort to expand medicaid. let me make that point abundantly clear. if we fail to act, montana taxpayer dollars will be used to provide health care to citizens thousands of miles away while i rates will continue to go up year after year. it's time we set politics aside on this issue. politics won't treat diabetes. extremism doesn't create jobs. intransigence will provide health care for those who can't afford it. [cheers and applause] .. for the program in over two decades. for that and other reasons, tonight i ask each and every member of this legislation to take the longer view. lead the way by focusing on health and welfare of our neighbors. let work together to put montana begans first and use their hard-earned cash dollars wisely.

to do some in nevada. yes, sir. >> regarding religious liberty faith issues, economically and otherwise who believe that our religious, state religious liberty and life come from jesus, not men. >> i'm sorry, i didn't get the question. >> i'll rephrase that. basically the christian church in our nation are concerned about the moral decline in our nation and how faith and religious liberty issues in life are crucial, from declaration of independence, and how they would believe that our rights come from jesus, not men. how would the administration respond to that? >> i'm not sure i have an administration response. the president as a man of faith believes very deeply in the importance that it plays in his life and understands clearly the importance of place in the lives of so many millions of americans. yes, major. >> is the gdp report good news or bad news? >> i don't think anytime you see a reduction in economic growth that it's goodness, but i think we need to understand what lies underneath the come in particular in defense spending, which is consistent with what we know has been going
. there are times when parents are torn apart, children, this broken system also strains our economy, nevada and around the country. people who should be paying taxes are living in the shadows. we need to make them fully contributing members of our society. our economy has denied that contributions of innovations of people who simply want to work and work hard. this issue has lingered unresolved for far, far too long it is time to get it done, mo vaughn. fixing are broken immigration system, no one disagrees with that statement, urgent, and i fully support the efforts of this bipartisan group of senators seeking to solve this issue. people are always looking for bipartisan acts. take a look at this. this is exemplary work, and i commend each of them. fixing and innovation system is an urgent priority. our nation is a common-sense solution and a tough and smart path to citizenship for the estimated 10 million individuals in our country who are undocumented and a plan that secures our borders. i have been advocating these principles for years and employees that the bipartisan framework meet se
actually think the president was remarkably tempered in nevada, and less partisan than usual. so i'm modestly encouraged. i don't personally believe, and i've said it over and again, that a comprehensive bill can pass. i think that it's too hard. i think that you could pass seven or eight bills that together form a comprehensive reform. my advice to the house republicans would be, start passing bills. you don't have to hang on -- >> jeb bush says that's impractical and he wrote that article last week in the "wall street journal." he says, go for the comprehensive, don't do it peace mie meal. >> look -- well, i have great respect for jeb bush, but i believe that in this city, what you end up with is 11:00 at night, in the white house, six people in secret, writing a bill they don't know anything about, dumping stuff in the bill at the last minute. it is the worst possible form of legislation. they ought to hold hearings -- first of all, let's hold hearings. let's get out in the open. >> they will be holding hearings, and they'll be introduced -- quickly, are you with marco rubio or
and it will not be easy. in a few hours the president will give a speech in nevada. and early press accounts concern me. i don't want to turn this into a partisan thing but let me just say this. if this endeavor becomes a bidding war to see who can come up with the easiest, quickest and cheapest pathway to green card possible, this thing is not going to go well, folks. we have now a very commonsense and reasonable set of principles, and i hope what the president will say today is that he hopes that process succeeds. but if his intentions are to trigger a bidding war to see who can come up with the easiest process, this is not a good start. but let's give him the benefit of the doubt. i hope my colleagues will do the same. i am deeply committed to the rule of law and to having an immigration system that works. i hope we can work together to accomplish that. i yield the floor. i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: sproeup. the presiding officer: the majority leader. mr. reid: madam president, i ask unanimous consent at 2:15 today the senate proc
